Ayesha had just walked back into the infirmary and grabbed a nearby medical kit.
Dean feared that she was possibly angry and pretended to fall asleep.
She called out his name but he did not respond and continued his act while Ayesha sighed and started to unpack the medical kit.
Taking out ointments and bandages she undid the one that was currently on Dean, revealing hideous open wounds that were charred to black.
Unfortunately for Dean, he had loss too much blood meaning the nurse refused to remove the brunt skin as it would lead to potentially losing his life.
Instead they had to give him pills to revitalize his blood and create more of it before they could proceed to remove any more dead skins.
Pulling out tweezers, Ayesha plucked the flaky burnt skin and removed the small patch that remained on his arm before throwing the remnants into a nearby bin.
Applying a type of oil, it stung like hell for Dean however he kept his calm and acted like he was too sleepy to notice.
Ayesha smiled in cruelty at the twitching of Dean's mouth but continued her application.
Bandaging that area it seemed that his arm was the only problem as the rest of his body had no need for tweezers but just a change of bandages.
It was extremely awkward for Dean as he noticed that Ayesha was taking a longer time on his chest with the bandaging however he tried to think of different thoughts.
Until there was utter silence and he felt that there was no one did Dean finally sigh
But a scream interrupted his peaceful thoughts.
"Y-you, you were awake..."
What soon followed was the grievous scream of Dean
Dean was full of energy after that experience and was in no mood to suddenly sleep, instead he asked Ayesha if anything else had happened.
From what she explained, the girls were brought into the infirmary for a quick check up before being moved to a distant room, far away from student activities.
After being questioned they were given a story of why they were missing for 20 days with the most common one being a registered absence notice for closed cultivation needs.
They held no suspicions and released the girls without too much of a hassle.
Christian had yet to wake up and was still lying in a random bed within the infirmary.
As soon as Dean had heard that Christian was still alive he tried to get up of the bed but along with the the excruciating pain that stimulated his nerves and Ayesha's push he was still stuck on the bed.
Ayesha had somewhat expected this reaction but chuckled
"He's in a different infirmary. Keep on resting, i'm sure the school will know how to deal with him."
Dean tried to relax but something kept on nagging him that something wasn't right with how everything was.
'It felt like something was missing'
When Ayesha saw that Dean was left silent, she guessed that he was probably tired and exited the room to let Dean rest.
This nagging feeling kept on getting stronger but Dean finally realized what it was
There was no one left that would have a grudge against Dean and have the ability to pose any trouble to him as Christian is too injured to do anything against him.
It was only Rose that could cause trouble and have a real reason for trying to kill Dean.
When trying to guess what tactic she could use to kill him, Dean realized that he had no idea what skills Rose had.
Was she good in Martial Arts?
Was she good in Magic?
He had no idea how he would be able to plan a defense for an attack and just left it to spontaneous planning.
Trying to stand on guard at all times, Dean tried going through a process of light sleeping so that he could be aware of the slightest movements at all times but after several weeks nothing happened.
Ayesha came to visit him a plentiful number of times but that was it.
Dean came to the conclusion that Rose was most likely planning one of the two things.
By causing paranoia to Dean, his mentality and decision making will be heavily effected which could lead to poor choices that Rose can take advantage of.
The other option was that she was not confident in beating him despite his injured state and decided that it was best for her to wait for Christian to recover before fighting him 2v1.
However he wasn't too worried about fighting compared to when he was heavily injured.
After all the medications Dean has taken, he felt he was in a comfortable condition to protect himself but the problem was that he wasted so much time in not cultivating.
Mentioning 'cultivation', Dean once more felt like he was trying to recall what Christian said but the fight seemed non existent inside his head.
From what he can remember, it involved some gibberish that Christian was talking on the spot in order to buy time.
It was strange that the school had yet to announce Christian's punishment as Ayesha hadn't told him anything of it.
... is what he thought before Ayesha came crashing through the infirmary door.
"Christian's been expelled!"
Dean was speechless at the great timing as well as the lacking of punishment.
"Young miss, this is an infirmary! A place to rest..."
The nurse tried pushing Ayesha out of the room while Dean still remained in shock, contemplating what he would do from now.
He thought that the academy could've done a better job and harden their resolve to actually do something but it was this weak result.
'I guess doing the job yourself is the only way.'
According to his estimation he needed just three more days before his body would return to the best state it was in and what he could plan.
